Hi, I currently have a samsung corby and I am wondering if I could buy a new Samsung galaxy s3 and not upgrade my plan. Could I then put the Sim card from my old phone into the gs3???
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
your better off ordering a free Micro SIM from Rogers because cutting SIMs can cause them to be ...well a little touch and go if not cut perfectly. All you will need to do then is call Rogers to ask them to switch you number over to the new sim. they can do it almost straight away on the phone. they will only want the long number at the back of the sim so have it ready before you call.
Sometimes Rogers does give the SIM card for free. I've never ordered one, but have gone into the store & not paid. Happened when I bought my Note, and thought it took a mini (it doesn't)... cut it down, then figured out I made a boo-boo
So, it happens. Just don't expect it
Its rare for that to happen unless you get the device from the store or buy a device. You can always contact Rogers retentions & give you a $10 credit on your account BUT you will need to buy the sim card from the store
& then the credit goes into your invoice.
Its rare for a store to give you a sim card for free but it does happen once in a blue moon like it did with you:). The stores will charge you tho to get a sim.
Nano Sim Card question
I currently own a S3 which has a micro sim card in it. I am currently with Rogers on a month to month plan as I do not wish to change my plan (hardware upgrade via Rogers = must get new plan).
As a result I will be purchasing an unlocked phone which means I will need to get a new nano sim card.
Wil the process of changing from a Rogers micro sim to nano sim impact my plan in any way (i.e will I be forced to change plans?)
Welcome to the Community Forums!
I would like to help. Changing SIM cards will not effect your plan in any way. Your plan will remain the same if you are just buying a phone outright and replacing your SIM card with one which is the correct size to work with that phone.
Hope this helps :).
